What about confidentiality?Hypnotherapy and Hypnobalancing™ in Berlin
Some clients ask; are the things we talk about kept private?
Yes, everything said during your sessions is held in complete confidence. I will never share information about you with others unless we absolutely have to. I have to report risks of suicide, homicide, or incidents of child abuse. Because of technical reasons I also can’t guarantee the security of emails or connections during sessions over the internet. The technical solutions I choose are in accordance with the current data protection. I do my best to protect confidentiality.
If a family member asks about your therapy, I will speak to you before talking to them. You decide what or how much we should tell them. And if you don’t want them to know anything, I won’t tell them anything, unless there’s a risk of suicide, homicide, or child abuse.
Feel free to ask me personally if you need more details!

These pages are intended to provide information to those interested in psychotherapy with hypnotherapy. They are neither intended to replace psychotherapy nor a personal consultation, examination, or diagnosis by a licensed physician. I am not a medical doctor. I am specialized to help people with fears and anxiety disorders. The profession of a hypnotherapist (official permission to practice psychotherapy according to the HPG) is fundamentally different from the practice of a medical doctor. Medical diagnoses are not made, nor are promises of healing made or medications prescribed. A medical or psychiatric intervention, if necessary, is not to be replaced by hypnotherapeutic treatment under any circumstances.
If you have questions about psychotherapy with hypnosis, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to inform you.
I am frequently asked about the origin and duration of treatment for anxiety and anxiety disorders. Here is my personal response.
Friends, colleagues, relatives usually have good intentions with people who suffer from anxiety. But the attempt to help rarely succeeds. We often hear that fear is purely a matter of the head. And if it is only a thought, it can’t be that bad, can it?
What about the relationship between anxiety and being overweight? Some evidence suggests that obesity is positively associated with anxiety disorders in adults.
